Does anyone who teaches that the unregenerate are "spiritually dead" don't actually have a spirit?

Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

I am curious what died in Adam in the day his sinned if it was not his spirit. I'm not being dogmatic about it, but something did and based on Eph 2 (and others) we know something of man is walking around "dead" before regeneration.
